Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

09/07/2009 - Labor Day

Weather was great and the number of visitors was fairly substantial. I started out slow, the 1st tour was given to a single visitor who was waiting to catch a bus. The next group was largely made up of Navy Vets and their families. The final group was the largest of all, perhaps 15 visitors. The group included a teacher who was planning on taking her class to the Slater. I think this is fantastic and I'm sorry I didn't spend more time discussing her plans. While the USS Slater is a great destination for a Social Studies/History Class, I think we need to do more for Math and Science.
